It definitely sounds like a good plan to me, provided it wont affect your health or slow down school for you beyond what your willing to accept

I'm not sure at all how it will affect my health. I don't know if I can handle a full time job at this point in time. I have to still talk with my advisor at school Monday and see how I can rearrange classes so I'm out of school by noon at the latest. Afterwards I'll talk with the assistant manager Wednesday about the promotion, assuming I can reschedule classes next semester. (Worse comes to worse I'll just do part-time next semester and take summer classes again next year to make up).

 

I'm just tired of not knowing. It's been nearly a month and they're still sending me paperwork to fill out every week. It's bullshit. They're still going to need to schedule an appointment with one of their doctors, too. The opportunity for a full time position won't be available to me in the two months or so for them to make a decision, so I think should take fate into my own hands now.

 

It's not like I want to be on SSDI. I hate it. It's embarrassing for me. And if I can manage a full time job, it means I don't need it--which is great!

I suppose you could ask to try the supervisor job for a month or two and see how it goes. That would require your employer to be aware of and sensitive to your condition, though...

My managers are aware and supportive helping me control my condition as necessary (e.g., leaving the sales floor if necessary to utilize some DBT stuff).

 

If I go full time, even for a month, I will definitely lose benefits, so it's all or nothing.

how hard is it to get benefits back if full time doesn't work out? I imagine it's a pain in the ass

I added a really crude 'decoration' tool that allows me to place static objects (like walls):

I also had to add support for static objects lol.

I'm also working on a really dumb pong game where you use the pong ball as a weapon for a class assignment:

pOtRGA8.png

You play as Sneaksy (a rip off of the Mahjarrat Sliske from RS) and need to steal the Jakkenstone (rip off of the Stone of Jas) from the Drakkenson (rip off of the Dragonkin) but need to kill waves of enemies in the process using the Staff of Armadyllo (rip off of the Staff of Armadyl) using the Storm of Armadyllo (...) spell. You can resurrect fallen enemies as wights (like the Barrows brothers in RS; Sliske is the one who turned them) to help you in your conquest. After killing enemies you can power up the Storm of Armadyllo by bouncing it off the Jakkenstone to deal more damage. The ball doesn't ever go out of bounds but you have to swipe it in a direction when it's near you for it to do damage or something I'm not sure yet.

Been in Texas for a week now. So far so good. Had a bit of a rough start though. The housing i'm staying in was organized through the school. Apparently it's actually meant for the Uni students, but the school has a deal with them so we can stay here too, which is cool. The apartments are "fully furnished", which to me means it's fully furnished as in appliances and shit too. Since the school never mentioned otherwise, imagine my shock when i finally finish moving in and realise fully furnished really just meant "bed, couch, fridge". It's 6pm, i've been up since 6am running around doing registration and paper work. Haven't had a bite to eat, only had a small bottle of water. I'm tired, starving, and the only food i had with me had to be cooked and i had a few cans of tuna. For some reason i had a spoon in my backpack, which i had to use to open a can of tuna. Took me easily 20 minutes to open it up, 2 small cuts on my finger, but damn did that tuna taste good. I was more than just a bit annoyed, especially considering the school's driver took me to go shopping and never once thought it might be a good idea to mention i should pick up a pot and a pan while im there. Anyway... few days later and i at least have a few basics to cook with and such. Apart from that initial hiccup though, things have been pretty alright otherwise. Just been doing ground school for now. Should start flying again within the next week or so. Pretty excited about that. Also need to start looking for a car so i can actually get around a bit easier, and not have to rely on transportation provided by the school. They basically just take you to school and back, and i'd like to actually be able to go places. Also, it's pretty weird being in the western civilization again. It's funny how you don't really notice how different it is living in the middle east until you're not living there. Small things like how much friendlier people tend to be. Maybe it's a southern thing, but people here seem super friendly. It's nice.

Yeah, fully furnished never means all appliances and everything for us either. Washing machine, fridge and stove are generally included though. But everything smaller - nope, bring your own.

I've realized it's the thing with every city. People in cities are always tied up in their rat race, no time for anyone or anything. And that means a lot of rudeness aswell. Things are not so bad in smaller towns or places.

Was talking to a classmate today about the current political situation between Qatar and the UAE, Saudi, and some other GCC nations. Well, the conversation started there and drifted off to other things, but i'll get to that in a bit. Anyway, the entire conversation really just reaffirmed to me that Saudi is a poisonous pile of shit. I realise that with this political situation both sides (both Qatar and the other Nations) are pretty much equally guilty. As we were talking i was owning up to the bad things Qatar has been doing to cause and prolong the crisis, but whenever i so much as mention anything negative regarding Saudi and the UAE, i get shot down and told it's all bullshit propaganda. One example was an advert aired in Saudi of the Saudi Air Force shooting down a Qatar Airways plane for entering the Saudi airspace. The point of the advert was pretty simple. It was a direct warning. I mentioned it and was told that the advert was taken out of context (which it wasn't) and got told there was nothing really wrong about it. I mentioned the funding of various terrorist groups. It's pretty common knowledge that the entire region funds various groups. Nope. Apparently Saudi hasn't been funding any groups for years now. It's all just fake news and propaganda. The people there have been so brainwashed by the government and media. In their eyes, Saudi has done absolutely nothing wrong, the UAE has done nothing wrong, and Qatar has been doing nothing right. 

 

We talked about other various things too, shit like relationships and the role of women. What women can and can't wear, etc. I think this was the first time i ever really spoke about these things in such detail with someone. I was actually kinda disgusted by some of the answers he gave me. How he just thought it was perfectly normal to tell a woman to cover herself, how it's perfectly normal for a woman to tell her husband to cover himself, the whole "multiple wives" thing. It was actually kind of eye-opening.

Sounds like the things a guy that said Saudi is without fault would say. I don't think I would have carried a conversation past that. But then, I don't much like having any conversation these days.

It occured to me - that while there are only like 6 people active on the forum there are still a large number of guests that trawl through the posts from 2009 and look at old ass accounts - My guess is that it's either an opportunist looking for salvageable information to make some recovery attempts the email log-in system was not implemented for many people. Jokes on them though - those dead-ass accounts probably only have a whip and a d chain RS3 :P
